Donovan Woods doesn’t waste words, and he doesn’t mince them either. He sounds disgusted and/or angry at times while singing songs about American presidents or Canadian provinces with that warm, weathered voice of his. He isn’t fancy, flashy or pretentious, and, based on the rock solid evidence from his Twitter feed, seems like he would be awesome to go get some burritos and beers with. These are just a few reasons that Donovan Woods is one of my favorite songwriters going today.
Donovan Woods released his terrific new album, Don’t Get Too Grand, today. You’d do well to pick it up and listen to it over and over. Enjoy.
